Eight cabinet ministers to deliver statements before Egypt's parliament this week
Published in Ahram Online on 24 - 01 - 2021

Eight cabinet ministers of the government of Egypt's Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly will appear before the House of Representatives this week to deliver statements on the current and future programmes of their portfolios.
On Sunday, Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation Mohamed Abdel-Ati and Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation El-Sayed El-Quseir will explain the policies of their ministries. They are also expected to answer questions from MPs on the latest developments of negotiations related to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) and its impact on Egypt's quota of Nile water and agricultural exports.
On Monday, Minister of Manpower Mohamed Saafan and Minister of Emigration Nabila Makram will deliver statements on unemployment and problems facing Egyptian expatriates.
On Tuesday, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry and Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Manar Enaba are scheduled to appear before parliament. Minister Shoukry is expected to answer questions on GERD negotiations and the future of Egyptian-American relations under the administration of new US president Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, Minister of Culture Ines Abdel-Dayem and Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad will appear in parliament to deliver statements on the policies and programmes of their ministries and answer questions.
House Speaker Hanafi El-Gebaly indicated last week that 31 cabinet ministers will appear before parliament to explain the latest development of the two-year old "Egypt Kicks Off" programme.
El-Gebaly said parliament noted that the "Egypt Kicks Off" programme, delivered by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly before parliament in June 2018, is short of the expected and full of shortcomings and negative points.
"I agreed with PM Madbouly that all 31 cabinet ministers should come to parliament and explain the role of their ministries in implementing the "Egypt Kicks Off" programme and answer questions from MPs," said El-Gebaly, indicating that "two cabinet ministers will come per day to deliver statements and answer questions."
PM Madbouly delivered a statement before parliament on 18 January, stressing that his government was able to achieve a higher economic growth rate despite the coronavirus pandemic. He also indicated that his government aims to boost growth rates in 2021, double exports, and increase social protection programmes.
Madbouly's statement was followed by eight cabinet ministers appearing before parliament from Monday (18 January) to Thursday (21 January) and answering questions on the roles of their ministries in implementing the "Egypt Kicks Off" programme.
